But speaking of Afghanistan, the caution is necessary: too many times to ads of a breakthrough in negotiations between the Taliban and the United States have followed new attacks and clashes. This time the news was leaked to the Associated Press by sources in the diplomatic, after the Us secretary of State, Mike Pompeo , and the minister of Defence, Mark Esper , they had met with afghan president Ashraf Ghani on the sidelines of the conference on security in Munich. The head of american diplomacy had reported a “major breakthrough” , stressing that it was the presidency to push for the continuation of the talks, after they have been interrupted in September last year. On that occasion, Donald Trump had made reference to the bombing of the Taliban was killed in a U.s. military: for many analysts, however, the decision to stop negotiations was from the pressures of the generals and of the afghans themselves, both of which are very unhappy with the draft agreement obtained by the envoy of the White House Zalmay Khalilzad , which according to many would have returned Afghanistan to the times of the islamic emirate.
this Time there is a new element: the availability of the – at least apparent - of the Taliban to sit at the table with representatives of the Kabul government. But it would not be sensible to have illusions about a real peace in the short term. Intelligence sources have today launched the alert for possible attacks in the area of Herat, just that where are the Italian military. And exponents Taliban interviewed by the local press have blown away the optimism, declaring that the agreement only serves to start up the foreign troops. Then, it will be the power to determine who controls the Country.
